He was one of our worst forwards on the pp last year and didn't do a heck of a lot with the pp on the Ice Caps. He has a long way to go before he's able to contribute on the pp at an NHL level. He was also given a massive push at the end of last season in the top 6 and failed to take advantage of it so I really don't have an issue with the coaching staff starting him in the bottem 6 this year. I agree that he is currently in a role that suits his game atm and I have seen signs of simplified play and better offensive decision making but he isn't cut out for a top 6/pp role yet.
